From the
“The only constant in life is change”
So wrote the ancient Greek philosopher Heraclitus (535-475 BC). If this is true
(or even partly true) then it is essential that we prepare for change. Planning for
the future is one of the skills which all good leaders need to exercise on a regular
basis. There is an energy which comes from preparing for change, but in some
instances, there is also a degree of sadness. Why? At times the change which is
looming involves greatly respected and loved people.
In the coming months, the Diocese of Sandhurst will bid farewell to some very influential citizens who
have touched and improved the lives of so many. Sr Patricia George RSJ (Sacred Heart Parish Corryong),
Mrs Joan Short (Holy Rosary School Heathcote), Mrs Joan Moriarty (St Joseph’s School Cobram) have each
indicated that they are moving on to new fields of endeavour in their lives. In July this year Fr Ted
Harte (Parish Priest of Holy Rosary Parish White Hills), will celebrate his Golden Jubilee as a Priest. It is
impossible to gage the immense good that has flowed for so many people through the devotion to duty of
such people. Each is inspired by their love of the vocation which has helped to shape their lives, whether
that be in pastoral work, education or priestly ministry. What a poorer society we would be without the
influence of such committed role models, good women and man, each seeking to serve others as we know
God would have us do. In a world which so often promotes a different set of values, these Sandhurst
citizens remind us that life is not just about ourselves, that we should never be fooled by desires of the
moment, that a greater happiness will emanate from striving to better the lives of others.
In reflecting upon the commitment of people such as Sr Pat, Joan, Joan and Fr Ted, I am reminded of the
words of the Quaker Missionary, Etienne de Grellet:
“I shall pass this way but once; any good that I can do or any kindness I can show to any human
being; let me do it now. Let me not defer nor neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.”
My knowledge of each of these people is that humility lead them to tell me to stop. But we should
celebrate goodness at every opportunity. We should allow ourselves to be reminded that God wants us to
be people of integrity and, in this Jubilee Year of Mercy, we should highlight the love of good people who
have extended the hand of mercy so quietly and gently to those in need.
Life moves on. Changes happens. Role models come and go but their influence, their good example and
their great achievements live on long after they are gone.
“Your soul is dyed the colour of your thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your
principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice.
Day by day, what you do is who you become.
Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way.”
Mr Paul Desmond
Director of Catholic Education Sandhurst
Education front and centre
How government policy supports quality teaching
and learning and how schools are funded will be an
important focus of the federal election campaign,
National Catholic Education Commission executive
director Ross Fox said.
On May 8th Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull attended
Government House to advise the Governor-General to issue
writs for a double dissolution, thereby starting the countdown
to a July 2 election.
“Over the next six weeks, political parties and candidates will
outline their vision for the future of Australia, and that future
is dependent on how students and schools are supported,” Mr
Fox said.
“With the ‘Quality Schools, Quality Outcomes’ policy and the
‘Your Child. Our Future’ policy, the Coalition and the Australian
Labor Party have given their respective blueprints on school
education over the short and medium term.”
Mr Fox said those policies and any other announcements during
the election campaign will be assessed through the lens of the
new Funding Principles for Catholic Schools document.
“Education policies should be assessed holistically, with a
recognition that funding is significant for school education, but
it is part of broader considerations of what schools and students
need,” he said. “How funding reflects the needs of students and
schools is crucial. How quality teaching is supported is crucial.
How policies support the learning of each child is crucial.”
Mr Fox said more than 70 new Catholic schools are planned to
start construction in the next five years, as part of a $3.3 billion
capital works program. Under current arrangements, parents
will pay the vast majority of that cost, but a lack of funding
means many of those schools may not be built.
The new Funding Principles for Catholic Schools document
provides Catholic education’s vision for how all schools should
be supported by governments. Principles include funding
certainty, funding equity, needs-based funding, parental choice
and religious freedom.
The National Catholic Education Commission has also launched
a new website – SchoolFundingFacts.com – to inform parents
and the community about how Australian schools are funded
and to explain the important role of Catholic education in
“The 1,731 Catholic schools across the country are seen
as ‘Partners in Australia’s Future’ – partners with students
and families, partners with governments, and partners with
government and independent schools,” Mr Fox said.
“Catholic education is focused on how government policy
supports all students in all schools, and students with additional
learning needs should receive extra support for their education,
regardless of which school they attend.
Mr Fox said parents of school students and those who value
school education should take a keen interest the federal
election. In 2014, the Commonwealth spent more than $14
billion to support students in all schools.
“Over the past decade, the number of students with disability
and the number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students
in Catholic schools has doubled.” Mr Fox reiterated the
importance of education in the upcoming election campaign.
For Catholic and independent schools,
Commonwealth funding is hugely important.
“We understand that Australia’s future is brightest when all
students and schools receive the necessary support to create
quality learning opportunities in every Australian school. This
election will shape how those opportunities are created,” he
“With 70 per cent of the cost of educating a Catholic school
student, on average, coming from governments, and mostly
from the Commonwealth, school funding policy is a very
important election issue for the 765,000 students in Catholic
schools and their families,” Mr Fox explained.
“And with the level of fees required by schools directly linked
to levels of government funding, families will also be affected
by the funding policy implemented by whichever party forms
government after the upcoming election.”
Mr Fox said neither major party has yet addressed how increasing
demand for school places in the coming years will be met.
“As many as 180,000 additional students are expected to be
receiving a Catholic education by 2025, and how new schools
are paid for and how existing schools can provide places for
additional students is an issue of national significance,” he said.
“There is a need for financial support from the government to
construct and expand schools to meet the growing school-aged
Bound for Poland
One cannot fully appreciate World Youth Day without
fully comprehending what is involved in “pilgrimage”.
Pope John Paul II was the first to bring the idea
of pilgrimage to successive generations of young
Catholics when he invited the youth of the world to
join him in Rome in 1986 for what became the first
World Youth Day. While World Youth Day is celebrated
every year on Palm Sunday the focus tends to be on
the International World Youth Days which occur every
two or three years in some parts of the globe, like
Sydney in 2008. There have been 13 International
World Youth Days overall.
How does a country exist when it can’t be spotted on the map,
when it is ruled by people who do not speak the language or
share its customs? How can a nation without borders exist?
Answer: a nation stays alive in its culture and in its faith.
Pilgrimage became the cornerstone of the Polish people’s
cultural and faith experience. Pilgrimage kept the Polish people
connected to one another and to the heart of their faith and so
their identity. Pilgrimage provided space for the people to be
free to practice their faith – how were the Russians supposed
to know that Poles walking and seemingly talking amongst
themselves were actually praying together? Pilgrimage has truly
been a sustaining force for Poland.
This year, over 300 Victorians (including 32 Sandhurst pilgrims)
continue the tradition as they head to Krakow, the spiritual
capital of Poland. Saint John Paul II was ordained in Krakow, was
Archbishop there, and considered it his home. At a time when
religious practice was heavily oppressed by Soviet Russia, Pope
John Paul II not only symbolised the Poles’ identity as a people
but also inspired them to keep believing in ultimate victory for
their history, culture and national unity. Pilgrimage was a central
theme of his famous speech in Warsaw in 1979 on his first visit
back to Poland as Pope, when he inspired his countrymen to
pursue freedom against Soviet rule.
The Polish people are a pilgrim people. Seven million Poles
- that’s one in seven - make a pilgrimage each year. One in
twenty of the world’s pilgrims - and one in five Europeans who
make a pilgrimage - is Polish. Poland has around 500 pilgrimage
destinations; chief among them is Czestochowa, the home
of the Black Madonna. Recently I was told that it is common
practice for Polish expats on their return to relatives in Poland to
find themselves journeying home via one of these sites.
In that speech Pope John Paul II also said “Without Christ it is
impossible to understand the history of Poland.” Christ is the
central unifying figure of the Polish nation. It has been this
way since the birth of Poland as a nation in the tenth century
after King Mieszko I was baptised (in 966) and declared all his
subjects Christians. Today approximately 85% of Polish people
profess to be Catholic.
Historically Poland has always been vulnerable to the forces
that surround it. Sandwiched between Russia to the east and
Germany to the west, it has long been a political and mercantile
crossroad and has often found itself the centre of power
struggles. By the late 18th century Poland had been partitioned
among Russia, Prussia (Germany) and Austria. In one of the
most painful chapters in its history Poland had been wiped from
the map of Europe. Poland was not there and yet … Poland was
still there.
With all this in mind it should not be surprising that Saint John
Paul II was the one who encourage pilgrimage - to the climactic
Vigil and Final Mass - as a central activity in the weeklong World
Youth Day program. Our Sandhurst pilgrims, and the family and
friends they leave behind, should be reassured that they will be
in safe, experienced, faithful, loving hands in Poland.
The pilgrimage has already begun for those travelling to Krakow
with the completion of the first Pilgrim Formation sessions
locally. Their spiritual and practical preparations continues...

Being Father Brian
The Very Reverend Dr Brian Boyle EV
During childhood summers spent on the Kennedy farm
in Barnadown, Fr Brian Boyle never imagined that one
day he would return to the Sandhurst Diocese as the
Episcopal Vicar for Education.
Fr Brian was born in Melbourne in 1950 and grew up in the
north western suburb of Coburg. His mother Joan was a nurse
at St Vincent’s Hospital in Fitzroy and his father Bill worked with
the Melbourne Fire Brigade in East Melbourne. With an older
brother and younger sister, it was a typical childhood in a happy
family home.
“I remember as a child early Sunday mornings at 8 o’clock. All
these families would start coming out of their houses to walk
down the street for Sunday Mass, so we all knew who was
Catholic in the area and who wasn’t.”
Father Brian attended St Fidelis Catholic Primary School in
Moreland followed by Christian Brothers in North Melbourne
until the end of year 10.
“When I started school at St Fidelis, I was in a class of 64
students and we were taught by a young Mercy Nun who was
probably only in her early 20’s at the time… it was a typical
Catholic school with overtly Catholic families.”
His final two years of schooling were completed at Monivae
College, a boarding school in Hamilton, Victoria. Fr Brian’s elder
brother attended boarding school in Sunbury but his father had
heard about Monivae College and thought it would be suitable.
“They supported my education there for two years. My parents
did so through personal sacrifice. They weren’t wealthy people
and dad would have taken on extra jobs to pay for my education,
all to his credit.”
Monivae College was run by the Missionaries of the Sacred
Heart (MSC). There were 350 students at the College with 280
boarders. According to Fr Brian, the Missionaries of the Sacred
Heart showed great human kindness and care for the students.
It was their manner and actions that inspired him to priesthood.
Following matriculation, Fr Brian entered the MSC seminary
in Croydon, Victoria aged 18. Second Vatican Council had an
effect on how the seminary was structured in the late 1960’s
and so Fr Brian had his first year at the MSC Seminary at
Croydon before moving to Canberra for four years. During this
time he completed a Bachelor of Arts at the Australian National
A return to Melbourne in 1976 preceded his ordination the
following year. He completed a Bachelor of Theology (B Theol)
from the Melbourne College of Divinity. His first appointment
was as a member of a roving Religious Education team together
with a fellow Priest several years his senior. The MSC‘s had five
schools in Australia from Darwin to Hamilton and the job of the
roving team was to run all the school retreats. This was ground
breaking work and the team spent most of the year travelling
from one school to the other.
“It was a lot of hard work but very enjoyable. We ran retreats
for students from year 7 to year 12. I knew the name of every
student in year 12 from all of the five colleges. I used to learn
them from the books as we were driving from one place to the
next. I still keep in touch with a few of them.”
After three years on the RE team, Fr Brian spent time studying
in Rome. He obtained a Licentiate in Sacred Theology (STL) from
the Pontifical Gregorian University.
After returning to Australia in 1985, Fr Brian was appointed
head of the MSC seminary in Sydney. It would be another eight
years before he would return to Melbourne and to his first and
only appointment as a Parish Priest.
“In 1993 I spent a year as the administrator of the parish of Park
Orchards, Warrandyte. This was my only time in a Parish and I
loved it.”
Fr Brian returned to Rome the following year where he gained a
Doctorate in Sacred Theology (STD) at the Gregorian University
with research on synchronic and diachronic readings of narrative
in two chapters of the Book of Jeremiah.
In 1998 Fr Brian was appointed to St Paul’s National Seminary
in Sydney where he taught scripture. 12 months later he
would cross the country to take up an appointment as Dean
of the College of Theology at the University of Notre Dame in
Fremantle, Western Australia. It would be five years before he
would return to the east coast where he spent 12 months on
sabbatical in the USA and central Australia.
For the past 12 years, Fr Brian has been in Melbourne at the
Catholic Theological College, initially as Academic Dean and
currently as a senior lecturer. The role of Academic Dean is a
four year term which he served twice before finishing in the role
at the end of 2013.
Today Father Brian has many extensive and varied roles to which
he dedicates the majority of his time. He holds the position of
senior lecturer in Scripture at the Catholic Theological College
and is Academic Dean at Corpus Christi College in Carlton, the
seminary for the dioceses of Victoria and Tasmania, where there
are currently 47 students.
“I have responsibility for all of their studies. You really have to
get that right because that’s the future of the Church in many
Appointed as the Episcopal Vicar for Education in the Sandhurst
Diocese in November 2013, Fr Brian divides his time between
Melbourne and Bendigo. He is also Pastor of the German
Catholic Church in Camberwell where he lives when he is in
Melbourne, Chair of the Professional Standards Committee
of the Sandhurst Diocese, and Chair of the Sandhurst School
Education Board (SSEB).
“The role of Episcopal Vicar for Education enables me to support
Paul Desmond, the Director of Catholic Education Sandhurst, in
his work and to represent the Bishop in all matters relating to
Catholic Education in the Diocese.”
Fr Brian (pictured at back) with a friend at
Fr Brian pictured with his father Bill at the
Seminary in Sydney
“Being Chair of the SSEB has helped a lot, because it gives
you a formal role right in the centre of Catholic education.
You don’t have to know the answer to everything but you
need to know what’s going on and you have a voice in
A great believer in the value of tertiary education, Fr Brian
has gained a greater appreciation of the importance of
primary and secondary education, especially through his
role as Chair of the review committee of the Catholic
Education Office of our Diocese.
“The review has given me privileged access to how
the schools operate and work, their ethos, values and
spirituality. I think that has certainly given me more fire
and energy for this job.”
A man of many talents, outside his extensive responsibilities
Fr Brian has a passion for the Arts, especially theatre and
the Opera. He loves collecting antiques (when time and
money permit!) and loves overseas travel. Although time
is limited, Fr Brian likes nothing better than attending a
theatre performance or symphony concert.
Despite his busy workload, Fr Brian is relishing the
opportunity to be more involved in Catholic Education
and when he celebrates 40 years as a Priest next year, he
can both look back proudly over the past four decades of
service, while looking forward to his continued ministry
within the Church.
Catholic Identity
Disciples of Jesus
When I was a child if any of us were fighting or
being mean my mother would sing the hymn which
may be familiar to some of you “They’ll know we are
Christians by our love”. I am not sure whether this had
an immediate impact but it has had a lasting impact
for me and my siblings. There are many passages in
the bible that speak of God’s love but in John’s first
letter he tells us that “God is love” 1 John 4: 8. This
love is not an emotion but rather an action and a
commitment. Love is described well in St Paul’s first
letter to the Corinthian’s. Love is patient, kind, and
rejoices in the truth. Love is not envious, boastful,
arrogant, rude, resentful, irritable or insisting on its
own way.
This gives us a helpful and challenging introduction to what
it means to love. But in this year of mercy we can find even
more practical suggestions of what it means to love in the
corporal and spiritual works of mercy. The corporal works of
mercy describe how through love we can care for the bodily
needs of people in our community and in the world; feeding the
hungry, giving drink to the thirsty, clothing the naked, sheltering
the homeless, visiting the sick, visiting the imprisoned, and
burying the dead. The spiritual works of mercy are acts of loving
compassion which cater for the emotional and spiritual needs
of people in our community and our world including counselling
the doubtful, instructing the unaware, calling sinners to repent,
comforting the afflicted, forgiving offenses, bearing wrongs
patiently and praying for the living and the dead.
At critical moments in each era the Pope and leaders of the
church have used encyclicals, statements and other documents
to interpret Jesus teaching for the times so that Catholics could
be faithful in their daily lives as disciples of Jesus. These writings
have been distilled into principles of Catholic social teaching
which in a way provide guideposts or standards to assess
our actions and decisions. Different authors provide differing
numbers and versions of these but the first principle in all the
lists is human dignity. In all our actions and decisions do we treat
people as though they are made in the image of God? Do we
love them?
As we strive to recontextualise our understanding of Catholic
Identity and what it means to be disciples of Jesus in 2016 we
are called to look at our world through the eyes of Jesus and
consider what it means to love and live out the works of mercy
for our era. The challenges for our time are refugees and the
conflicts destroying their homelands, the unequal distribution
of wealth in the world, poorer educational outcomes for young
people in economically poor communities, sexual and physical
abuse of children, violence against women, the necessity of
reclaiming culture for indigenous communities, the drugs
epidemic, mental health problems amongst our youth and the
destruction of the planet to name a few.
There are plenty of large cries for love in our world. The good
thing is that we do not have to respond alone. Through our
baptism and confirmation, we received the gifts of the Holy
Spirit; wisdom, understanding, right judgement, courage,
knowledge, reverence and awe and wonder in God’s presence.
But just like other gifts they are not much use if we do not
nourish them, care for them and take responsibility to use
them. We also belong to a community and we can support one
another to be more loving and more like Jesus. The Josephites
have a saying, ”Where one is we all are” and that is certainly
my experience as we support one another in prayer, with words
of encouragement and financially. The description of the early
Christian communities in the Acts of the Apostles provide many
examples of how the first disciples supported one another to
live lives of love for Jesus and one another. They demonstrated
that we can do much more in community than we can alone.
Whatever Jesus asks of us he provides the grace for us to
respond to his call. Not everyone is called to do ground breaking
or spectacular feats of bravery and in fact sometimes it is harder
to do the mundane every day actions of love. Smiling at people
in the morning even when we do not feel like it. Listening to
the concerns or sicknesses of others when we have our own
problems. Taking time to visit someone in hospital even though
we are busy. Forgiving others when they hurt us. Recognising
when we have upset others and asking for forgiveness.
To be Catholic is to be a follower of Jesus with other disciples
who identify as Catholic. Are we disciples of Jesus in our
everyday lives? Do we support those like Caritas and St Vincent
De Paul who represent us in the situations where Jesus love is
most needed? Are we part of a community that cares for one
another and challenges one another to be more loving? Do we
come together to praise and thank God for his gifts and to draw
strength from one another?
After the resurrection when Jesus came to Peter who had denied
him Jesus did not admonish Peter but rather asked him three
times “do you love me?” and then directed Peter to feed his
sheep. This seemed to frustrate Peter but provides an important
message for us. If we love Jesus and want to be his disciples,
then we are called to love Jesus’s people. So as my mother and
the song say “they’ll know we are Christians by our love, by our
love, yes they’ll know we are Christians by our love” (Scholtes).

Faith in Life
My first year as a Seminarian
It’s now well over a year since I started studying for
the priesthood at Corpus Christi College Melbourne.
Yet it still seems like yesterday that I was working
in youth ministry in schools and parishes across the
Another major highlight has been the opportunity to engage
in pastoral work. This has involved working in a parish assisting
students prepare for the Sacraments, as well as at a nursing
home, where I had the great privilege of hearing the life stories
of so many residents.
I am now in my second year and the challenges of theology
and philosophy are well and truly alive, but I am enjoying the
challenges that the study presents.
I was also pleased that last year we had the opportunity to
make a pilgrimage to Penola where Australia’s first saint, St
Mary of the Cross MacKillop, set up her first school with Fr
Julian Tenison Woods, who both co-founded the Josephites.
This four-day pilgrimage included walking part of the ‘Aussie
Camino.’ We walked approximately 30 kilometres across two
days through bush and along the coast in Victoria’s south west.
It was spectacular scenery and provided for a prayerful journey.
The study, however, is just one of the many aspects of our
formation in our journey towards priesthood. Other areas
include pastoral, spiritual and human formation.
Our days typically begin with morning prayer in the chapel
at 6.45am, followed by meditation and Mass. Our day then
continues with classes at university, personal study or pastoral
work, before we regather again for further prayer in the evening
and dinner as a seminary community.
The opportunity to go to the seminary to deepen my relationship
with God has been something which I have cherished. It is my
hope that my studies will assist me in sharing God’s love with
others through my life and future ministry.
One of the great joys of my time at the seminary so far has been
the opportunity to share this journey with my year mates.
Other opportunities for spiritual formation include regular
spiritual formation and retreats.
This year has started well and assignments are certainly coming
through thick and fast.
I’m sure that 2016 will continue to offer plenty of great
opportunities, which I look forward to continuing to embrace.
Jackson Saunders
Last year I was part of the biggest intake of students at Corpus
Christi College for approximately 40 years. Thirteen of us joined
the seminary to study for the priesthood; nine for Melbourne,
two for Adelaide, one for Darwin and myself for Sandhurst. We
have developed a fantastic bond between one another and I
have no doubt that this will continue to be strengthened in the
years ahead.
To celebrate The Year of Mercy Catholic school students in the Sandhurst
Diocese will enjoy singing a song written especially to commemorate
this merciful year.
The song titled ‘Open the Doors’, was commissioned by Catholic Education
Sandhurst for use in the diocesan performing arts program in 2016, ‘Open the
Doors’ was inspired by Pope Francis’ symbolic launching of the Jubilee year for
The official logo, designed by
Father Marko I. Rupnik, shows
Jesus, personification of Mercy,
carrying on his shoulders a “lost
man”, emphasizing how deep
the Savior touches humanity; his
eyes are merged with those of
the carried man. The background
is filled by three concentric ovals,
with lighter colors outwards,
meaning that Jesus is carrying
the man out of the darkness of
sin. On one side the image is
also joined by the official motto:
Misericordes Sicut Pater (Merciful
Like the Father), derivative from
Luke 6:36, which stands as an
invitation to follow the example
of the Father by loving and
forgiving without limits.
The 2016 Jubilee was
first announced by Pope
Francis on March 13,
2015. It was declared
in the Pope’s April 2015
papal bull of indiction,
Misericordiae Vultus
(Latin: “The Face of
Mercy”). It is the 27th
holy year in history,
following the ordinary
2000 Jubilee during
John Paul II papacy.
Composed by Mark Puddy (pictured below), from the Australian School of Performing
Arts, ‘Open the Doors’ is a rousing gospel style piece that brings life to the Year of
Mercy invitation to love, kindness and unbounded generosity.
Sandhurst students will perform ‘Open the Doors’ at Sandhurst Arts on Show
in September this year. The performing arts festival involves students from both
secondary and primary schools from across the Diocese.
‘Open the Doors’ provides students with cross-curricular learning opportunities
which include Performing Arts and Religious Education as well as enabling students
to have a specially commissioned song to perform at school, parish and community
events throughout the year.
“Catholic Education in Sandhurst has been gifted with the professional
partnership developed with a3 through the Australian School of
Performing Arts. The growth in the performance culture for our students,
teachers and system has been incredible. We are delighted to have
found another avenue to build on our substantial partnership with
the commissioning of ‘Open the Doors’ in this Year of Mercy. We
couldn’t think of a better expression of all that is sacred and that will
engage our children and teachers.” Phil Bretherton
“The Holy Door will become a
Door of Mercy through which
anyone who enters will experience
the love of God who consoles,
pardons and instills hope”
